Australian actress Teresa Palmer is among a number of celebrities holidaying on Bali who tweeted about a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck on nearby Lombok island.
It was very scary and we are in Bali, I can’t imagine how it must’ve felt to those closer to Lombok. Thinking of everyone affected 🙏 https://t.co/RTAIT8EEqD— Teresa Palmer (@teresapalmer) August 5, 2018
American model and television presenter Chrissy Teigen posted a series of brief updates on her Twitter profile. The Lip Sync Battle host initially wrote: "Oh my god. Bali. Trembling. So long.", before adding "Phewwwwww", indicating that the tremors had stopped.
Teigen, 32, is with her husband, singer John Legend, and their two young children Luna and Miles.
The former Sports Illustrated cover star revealed the house in which they are staying is elevated from the ground, which added to the terrifying experience.
Teigen wrote: "Oh man. We are on stilts. It felt like a ride. 15 solid seconds of 'holy s*** this is happening.
"I very calmly walked outside saying clutching baby saying 'I'm naked. I'm naked. I'm naked'. Like a naked zombie."

Teigen then confirmed that aftershocks from the quake had started to hit the area.
She wrote: "I'm either still trembling or these little quakes won't stop. I'm trying to be normal here!".

Teresa Palmer said she felt the earthquake from where she was staying in a tree house in Bali.
She tweeted: "We felt it here in Ubud and it was VIOLENT. We are staying in a tree house and it was swaying like crazy. Very scary. Stay safe everyone."
She added: "It was very scary and we are in Bali, I can't imagine how it must've felt to those closer to Lombok. Thinking of everyone affected."
Take That star Gary Barlow is also on holiday in Bali, and posted a message on Twitter assuring fans that he was fine.
"Thank you for your concern - we're all fine - a bit shaken up," he said.
